Do pre-divorce classes have any impact on parents?

14047761_S.jpgMany states have realized that, in some cases, divorces are going to be inevitable. There are laws around the country that make certain requests of people who are splitting up, such as abiding by a waiting period or seeking counseling. The effect of these is debatable, since both parties in a divorce are adults and should be able to understand the impact of their decisions.

Equal rights for fathers gaining more traction around the country

9416258_S.jpgThe movement to get fathers on a level playing field when it comes to child custody is gaining acceptance in more and more places around the country -- although there is still work to be done.

Dad seeks $120 million for being deprived of fathers' rights

15696030_S.jpgJust last week, we wrote on our St. Louis fathers' rights blog about a father who had spent an arduous process of several years and many court battles in an attempt to get back his daughter, whom he said had been improperly adopted when his parental rights were terminated. Now, another man in a similar situation is attempting to assert his fathers' rights in a case involving his daughter, who was adopted without his consent six years ago. The man is now suing several people, including the attorneys involved in the case originally, for $120 million in damages.

Adoptive parents in Missouri have to shoulder big responsibility

16972198_S.jpgThere are thousands of kids who need to be adopted. Whether they're in the U.S. or overseas, in foster care or in an orphanage, toddlers or teenagers -- lots of kids need homes. And many Missouri parents have opened their lives to these kids to give them a better life.

Request for child support modification by ex-wife of actor denied

13435666_S.jpgWhile the specifics of every divorce vary depending on a variety of circumstances, certain matters are more likely than others to be contentious. Those including children and money usually top the list and most are probably pleased when an agreement is reached. Individuals may not realize that the agreement may be revisited at a later date should one of the parties seek a modification.
